Spurs transfer targets revealed: Exclusive

Two transfer targets of our beloved club have suddenly risen to the surface from the deep sea of speculation, one in which, came as a shock to myself and I'm sure many of you others as well.
The one which acts as little shock, but is very understandable, is that of Swedish ace Marcus Berg, the golden boot winner of the European Under 21's Championships.

"Soren Lerby the agent of Marcus Berg, has informed us there is a really serious interest from two clubs in the Premier League," Nijland told the Sunday Mirror.
"We have his replacement already lined up."

Berg was a formidable figure for the Swedish Under 21's, helping them reach the semi-finals of the competition and almost embarrassing England to reach the final. A good signing? Yes.
What may come as a shock is that Redknapp has asked former Inter Milan and Madrid star Luis Figo to consider playing for us next season. The pair met at 'The Sir Bobby Robson Golf Classic'.

"We talked, since he is obviously a great friend of Sir Bobby Robson. Obviously we talked about football and he told me he had not yet decided anything about his future."

Now, should Figo's wages not bankrupt Levy, I believe that this would be a very clever signing. It reminds me of the 'Edgar Davids days' where the Dutchman's experience in midfield propelled us to 5th spot, almost piping Arsenal to 4th spot at the death. Figo's experience could prove pivotal in pushing us up the league table faster than Derby dropped down it. A good signing? Yes.

Should these players start in the lilywhite shirt next year I'd be happy. Redknapp would look to have got the balance right between young and old, helping us pip Arsenal to that fourth spot. Well, no harm in being optimistic, is there?
